Gaudio's last match ever at Roland Garros?

Stepanek too solid and showed why the match up against Gaudio works for him, with the changes of pace and excellent volleys.

Gaudio wasn't too bad in the first 2 sets, but Stepanek served well when he needed to and wasn't put under enough pressure through the match and played like it.

There were some good points in the match, just the wrong match up for Gaudio at this event.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Depends on what happens for the rest of the year, he wasn't awful, but Radek is a tough guy for him to play, with his changes of pace and Gaudio didn't make enough returns.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".

Some nice tennis from Guadio in the first two sets, too good from Stepanek though.

Steps had some good dropshots as well, the result was not really in doubt.

On Nadal bumping him on the changeover, Rosol said: "It's ok, he wanted to take my concentration; I knew he would try something".


Wilander on Dimitrov - "He has mind set on imitating Federer and yes it looks good. But he has no idea what to do on the court".
